...INCREASED FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS CENTRAL VIRGINIA...

The combination of west winds of 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 30
mph and very low relative humidity levels between 20 and 30
percent will enhance the threat for the ignition and spread of
wildfires this afternoon across central Virginia.

Residents are urged to exercise caution handling any potential
ignition source...including machinery, cigarettes, and matches.
Be sure to properly discard all smoking materials. Any dry grasses
and tree litter that ignite will have the potential to spread
quickly.
